If your student plans to attend a private, charter or school other than AG for the 19-20 school year, please stop by the main office to fill out & sign a withdraw form before June 7 . A parent/guardian’s signature on this form allows us to withdraw the student during July. (Forms for rising 9 th graders go to the appropriate high school.) This helps free up classroom seats for other students arriving at our school.
If you move during the summer…
Please let us know as soon as you can. CMS requires a signed address change form and two proofs of your new address. Download the form and a list of residency verification documents the district accepts from the CMS website , o r pick up the form in AG’s main office before June 7. When you have the proofs of residency, bring them to AG. When we have your current address, typically you receive the August mailing and bus transportation is correct the first week of school.
Important PowerSchool Reminder
Students seem to find a back door into PowerSchool each summer, and see course schedules under construction. If your student mentions seeing a schedule online, please tell them that what he sees today may not be there tomorrow. Schedulers work throughout the summer building schedules. A preliminary schedule will be available at Open House in August. Students get the REAL schedule from the homeroom teacher on the first day of school.
